Coach Moma Medic did not want to take the full glory for Tshakuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) qualifying for the PSL promotion playoffs.

TTM defeated Richards Bay 2-1 on the final day of the National First Division (NFD) season in Thohoyandou to book the last playoffs spot finishing the season in third place on 51 points.

Medic succeeded Sello Chokoe with nine matches left. He admits he had a good run which is not to say the side would be challenging for promotion even if he had started the season with them.

Vhadau Vha Damani had a disciplinary scare before this crucial encounter. Two weeks ago the side was found guilty of contravening NSL Handbook Rules in a league match against TS Sporting in April in Vhembe.

They were subsequently penalised R30 000 with half of the fine suspended for 12 months.

However the following week the league took the decision of its DC committee on appeal.

To TTM’s luck the side won the appeal meaning their fears of having points deducted were over. Medic concedes relief at hearing points were not going to be touched. – Report by Lethabo Kganyago
